MURFREESBORO, TN - It was a terrifying morning down the busy roadway of Murfreesboro. The Murfreesboro Police Department reported that a small plane has crashed on Dejarnette Lane at around 9:00 a.m. on Monday.
The pilot was hurt and is now recovering from his injuries. He was taken to the hospital for treatment, but thankfully he was fully aware and has reported the situation to the First Responder. Due to this incident, a part of Dejarnette Lane was closed for about an hour and a half until the plane was fully recovered.
Yvonne Ward, a resident near the location explained the situation, “I was doing some work in the den and I thought I heard something falling and then all of a sudden a major noise,” she said. "It was very frightening". Another witness said that the plane struck a power line before it lost control and crashed near the roadway.
The plane that crashed was a single-engine plane, Cessna 140, registered to a Smyrna address according to a record from Federal Aviation Administration. It was not cleared if the pilot is also the registered owner. A statement from the Middle Tennessee State University spokesperson Jimmy Hart said that the plane doesn't belong to the aerospace department of the faculty.
The FAA together with the National Transportation Safety Board will conduct an investigation of the crash.
Aside from the pilot, no one is injured because of the crash, despite the often busy road of Dejarnette Lane, especially in the morning. The plane has been moved to a secured location.
